Thanks to Inspired by Elizabeth for providing me with a free Steampunk necklace to review.
Do you love unique jewelry? I do! That's why I absolutely love "Inspired by Elizabeth."
Inspired by Elizabeth is an Etsy shop that sells fabulous, one-of-a-kind steampunk jewelry. Before I worked with Elizabeth, I had only casually seen steampunk pieces, so I wasn't aware of how intricately beautiful they really were.
Once my review piece arrived, I really saw how much detail is put into steampunk jewelry.
To be completely honest, I didn't know what steampunk was. After agreeing to work with Elizabeth, I did a little research, and found out that it mostly revolves around time, and how different the world would have been if it solely relied on steam power. I found it very interesting to learn about, and doing research made the piece much more fascinating to me, after it arrived.
The piece I received to review, was a stunning Steampunk Necklace
The first thing I noticed about the piece was the gorgeous stone. I love multi-colors, so the rainbow Swarovski Crystal was just perfect for my taste, and makes the necklace go with just about anything (I personally love it paired with bright neons.)
The next thing I noticed, was the amazing little gears, which make this necklace steampunk. The gears are actually pieces from a vintage Bulova silver watch movement. It's so fascinating, and adds so much depth so the necklace.
When my necklace arrived though, I do have to say - It was much smaller than I had imagined. Nothing wrong with that; It's still gorgeous, and I still love it, I was just surprised. I loved the way the necklace fell right on my neckline, and I just love the way it compliments almost any outfit.
Inspired by Elizabeth has tons of great steampunk pieces, including necklaces, rings, and earrings. Be sure to stop by to see her amazing collection :)
